Comedian Mark Steel is hitting the road with a brand new show this autumn. The comic promises to have a lot to yell about as he sets out to entertain audiences on his new tour, entitled An Evening and A Little Bit of a Morning. So what is there for him to shout about? Well, in his words, there's the modern world in which you spend so long trying to work out iTunes, that it's easier to form a band and learn the songs. But there's also so much to be delighted with. Like the fact that everyone in Northampton knows the sign that says 'Family Planning Advice – Use Rear Entrance'. Mark, who appears at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre on Saturday 3 September, also hopes to bring out the laughs with implausible sounding stories such as being brought up in a working-class street, only to discover his natural father was a millionaire backgammon player who was best mates with Lord Lucan.

Mark says ahead of his tour: "I've come to terms with the fact I'm a heap of contradictions, trying to stay young while being unable to log into any website. Trying to be respectable and mainstream (in this show there will even be a piano and a bit of singing), until I can't help breaking into a steaming rant that would get me locked away somewhere secure if it wasn't on a stage. And this is stand-up, so whatever has happened in the room, in the town or in the world that day will almost certainly be in the show. So, I'll try to keep it to a decent length, but it could so easily end up as an evening and part of the next day." Mark, whose critically acclaimed Mark Steel's in Town was voted the 6th best radio comedy ever, is a regular on the BBC's Have I Got News For You, QI and BBCR4's News Quiz. He has been named newspaper columnist of the year and is the author of the award-winning audiobook Who Do I Think I Am.
